Facebook plugin needs lot of attention from developers..
By , for WP 3.6.1

This plugin needs a lot of attention from its developers.

Comments box just stopped working after a while. And in support section questions related to the issue are marked "resolved" by developer when they are really not resolved.

Also, this plugin should provide code snippets to place in templates as an option. Not everyone wants to place like button and comments just where the plugin suggests.

Dashboard icon for the plugin isn't properly aligned. Is this a hint that the attention on plugin development is so poor, I wonder.

Recommends cut off on bottom
By ,

[Topic decapped - please do not yell here - http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#The_Bad_Stuff ]

Readers cannot send recommends because it gets cut off on the bottom....they can't get to the send button rendering it USELESS.

Please debug it as this was the reason for installing it. Too bad. Seemed promising.

Worst plugin in the whole universe
By ,

The user is expected to do several hundreds incomprehensible, complicated and basically useless steps that doesn't seem to have any reason at all, except to cause anger and to make the world worse.
And even if you manage to find their own step-by-step description, it doesn't help, because apparantly they've explained it wrong.

If you are tired of life, try to make this crap work, because it will suck all life right out of you.

Awful support and performance
By , for WP 3.6

I cannot control which pages the FB element appear. The Like pop-up element that appears is cut so it almost unusable. Tried debugging and couldn't resolve it.
Using the forum to get an answer is a waste of time. Either nobody knows how to fix this or the FB support sucks big time.

lots of hoops to jump through - for nothing
By , for WP 3.5.2

Followed the directions... and nothing. Also - there seems to be no way to specify which page this should post to, since I have a facebook account but I also manage a business page from within this account.

You would think a company as large as facebook could do better than this. Seriously.

What in God's name are they thinking?
By , for WP 3.5.1

Unless you're more interested in Facebook app development than in actually using your WP site or interacting with human beings, WALK AWAY. Delete this plug-in, and hug your loved ones. The only way to make this thing work is to teach yourself to navigate the trainwreck that is the Facebook Developers site, and to keep on coming back to it each time Facebook breaks the custom app you spent so much of your time banging your head against the keyboard trying to figure out how to make it work. In particular, if you want to use the feature that posts your WP articles as updates on FB, you will find it less time-consuming and frustrating to simply post those FB updates manually. A carefully crafted piece of software can save you lots of time in the long run, but this is a half-baked mess, and will have the opposite effect.
